Parliamentary secretary, irrigation and flood control, geology and mining, border affairs, Yanthungo Patton Saturday appealed the GBs to acknowledge the respect gained from the people and judiciously apply the additional responsibility they have been entrusted with to bring unity and peace in the village/colony.
According to Patton, all these can be achieved, when the GBs, who were regarded as the father of the villages, leave aside the practice of unwanted social activities.
“You are the father of the village, leave aside the use of intoxicants and illegal activities” and show good example to the village/colony, said Patton.
Patton, who is also a former chairman of Lotha Hoho Dimapur, made a clarion call to the Lothas (Kyong) to extend contribution by making their presence at this kind of gathering.
He made this statement after observing a poor turnout, at 6th Lotha GBs Union Dimapur foundation day held at Lotha Hoho ki, Dimapur.
Patton went on to say that among the Nagas, Lothas were becoming economically backward as the elected leaders have failed to provide adequate opportunity by its people.
For this, he urged the GBs, who are the leaders of the village/colony to choose and elect leaders who not only work for the development, but also encourage the people. Development in the region/area would take place when people give second chance to elected leaders who are wiling to work for the people, said Patton.
He further urged the gathering to extend their time and effort to the present government, which has brought more development to the areas, and at the same time appealed the GBs to extend their support to the four elected legislators from Wokha.
Former secretary Naga Hoho, Dr. John Murry in his brief address appealed to the gathering to develop respect and recognition among them in order to move forward. A minute silence was also observed as a mark of respect to those departed GBs.
A brief history on the formation of Lotha GBs Union Dimapur was presented by president Dimapur District GBs Association, M.Y. Ngullie. It may be mentioned that the union was formed in 2006 with Pichumo as president and Thungbemo Humtsoe as general secretary.
Lotha Hoho Dimapur, Eloe Ekhung Dimapur and Lotha Students’ Union Dimapur exhorted the gathering.
